Halloweensie Contest!

I decided to try my luck with the 2023 Susanna Leonard Hill Halloweensie contest! I always have fun with this contest and the challenge to write a 100-word story. I could not think of anything, but finally with a day to spare, inspiration struck. I think I did ok. Good luck to all participants and thank you Susanna, all the judges and prize donors. Much love!


Here is the link and rules to the contest:



The 13th Annual Halloweensie Writing Contest!!!


~ for children’s writers ~


THE CONTEST: write a 100-word Halloween story appropriate for children (children here defined as 12 and under) (title not included in word count) using the words werewolf, superstition, and fright.

  • Your story can be poetry or prose, scary, funny, sweet, or anything in between, but it will only count for the contest if it includes those 3 words and is 100 words. Get it? Halloweensie – because it’s not very long and it’s for little people 😊

Here is my entry:


NO GOOD TRICKS OR TREAT

By Thelia Hutchinson

WC 100


Werewolves come and werewolves go,

Tapping at my old front door.

Trick or treat, don’t smell their feet,

But give them something good to eat.

Some are big, some are small.

I wish they would not come at all.

They cause a fright and always fight.

On, this superstitious night!


I have a plan, so do not fear.

I’m planning a big feast.

I set a trap, to catch some wolves.

I’m so in for a treat.

But oh, my dear

I have been tricked,

They set a trap for me,

Oh, I wish I never cared for,

Stupid Halloween!
